CSI's 15th Anniversary Fundraiser
CSI is turning 15! Can you believe it? Yes! 15 years ago we opened our doors to 14 organizations with a simple idea about sharing and now we’ve seen over 5000 social innovators call CSI home. On Friday, May 31 we celebrate those 5000 amazing, creative, innovative social entrepreneurs who have helped us grow by hosting BLOOM.
Why ‘BLOOM’? Because we’ve been watching these amazing ideas blossom into so many solutions it’s hard to count. Because you are the community members who have tended to our ecosystem with loving care.
Because 15 years later, social innovation is flourishing.
Proceeds will go to the CSI Community Fund to pay for social innovation education and programs to accelerate the success and amplify the impact of community members who are putting people and planet first.
Join us to celebrate 15 years of building a new world –
a world built of hope and possibility as we announce CSI’s latest project with our beloved friends and family.
BLOOM – TOGETHER
CSI’s celebrating a journey that started with 14 member organizations opening the doors at 215 Spadina 15 year ago, and now includes 1,000 organizations building the new economy from three buildings in Toronto.
And our new affiliate charity, the Social Innovation Institute, is celebrating the launch of SI Canada, a national social innovation network connecting inspiring people and solutions across the country. We’ll be showcasing SI Canada and giving a peek at the amazing programs to come.
The ground floor of 192 Spadina will be transformed for a innovative and inspiring party where we celebrate our deep roots in the Toronto Social Innovation sector and beyond. We welcome the innovators who helped us grow and the nurturers who continue to forward our mission. Together we create the conditions in which beautiful things blossom.
BLOOM will capture the energy of the social innovation sector and CSI’s rich history with a blend of interactive installations, live music, and animations. Mix and mingle with thought-leaders while enjoying complimentary drinks and bites from Paint Box Catering.
Celebrate the groundswell of activity in CSI’s ecosystem. BLOOM is an important night to recognize and celebrate the incredible work CSI has done, and introduce SII to you, our supporters and fellow innovators.
Featuring sounds by Toronto’s hottest musical act, Jazz Money, live ambient performances by local circus artists, delicious mocktails by Temperance Cocktails, visual exhibits from CSI’s archives, live drawing by illustrator Joshua Rosen, live writing by Natalie Zina Walschots, and tunes by the magical DJ Steph Honey.
Plus, attendees will receive a special BLOOM edition of CSI’s Collider Magazine!
